November 2015: President Message

It has often been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the picture on this page tells of the culmination of 43 and a half years of determination and dedication by the people who fought for Patrolman Phil Cardillo’s rightful recognition and due respect.

In 1972 Patrolman Cardillo was ambushed and assassinated in the 116th St. Harlem Mosque. Thanks to the determination of many, Phil was finally honored on Monday, October 19th. I had the privilege to attend the street naming ceremony at the NYPD academy on 28th Ave. Flushing Queens. Isn’t it ironic that the street in front of the academy is 28th Avenue, as Phil was a member of the 28th Pct. when he met his demise. As frustrating as this procedure was I believe the untiring efforts were very much appreciated by Phil’s on, Todd, and the entire Cardillo family. Thanks to to all who worked so long and so hard.
